got to love former president bill clinton, interesting words on the fiscal cliff. in an event in sacramento, the president declared the whole standoff between president obama and the republicans as, quote, just a kabooky dance, two dogs that meet each other over a piece of meet, sniffing each other out, and moving towards a deal. with that elegance in mind, we welcome author of "the amateur," best selling author we have to say. friction here. that's not a helpful thing to say. i mean, he's not talking higher taxes, but dog sniffing which probably does -- may not offend the participants, i don't know. there's a little problem between the white house and mr. clinton. >> before i came on your show tonight, i spoke with sources who are very close to bill and hillary clinton, and they told me that bill clinton and barack obama ave had a major falling out. lou: wow, after all the campaigning? the elegant speech, really? >> because of this estrangement, i'm told, is back to the presidential election when clinton struck a deal with obama. in the deal, clinton said he'd give the nomin

to bill and hillary clinton, and they told me that bill clinton and barack obama ave had a major falling out. lou: wow, afterll the campaigning? the elegant speech, really? >> because of this estrangement, i'm told, is back to the presidential election when clinton struck a deal with obama. in the deal, clinton said he'd give the nominating speech and go out and campaign for obama, but in return, he wanted a couple things from the president. first, clinton wanted to be a allowed to name the next chairman of the democratic national committee to have effective control of the party apparatus and all the money that goes with that. lou: that's a big gift. >> well, he did a big deal for obama. lou: right. >> secondly, he wanted obama to agree that he would back hillary if she runs for president in 2016, and that was a verbal commitment he believed he had from barack obama. shortly after the election, according, again, to my sources, clinton sent obama a list of five names from which he could choose the next chairman of the democratic national convention. lou: a list from clinton to the preside

republican-controlled legislature was where it was going to happen. >> woodruff: bill, in a state that voted by ten points for president obama in november, it's a state that is striking a blow for right-to-work. how do you explain that? >> there was a mixeded result on november 6. i think everything mickey said is absolutely true, but republicans still control state government. they've got an ironclad grip from the governor's office, both houses of the legislature, the state supreme court, attorney general, secretary of state, and the window was closing. there are only two weeks left before the end of the year. and they had to get it done now or they were going to turn into pumpkins on new year's eve and only have a slim majority that might not be enough to get right to work to pass early next year. >> woodruff: mickey maynard, the republicans are saying this is going to help the state's economy, what has happened. is there a consensus in the state about whether that is correct or not? >> no, absolutely not. but republicans... what they have been saying and i've been listening to this discus

reduced to obama bad democrats maximumi s marxist, te nobody like irving kristol. bill's trying, to explain what this means and explain how we are right and we have been right. and our philosophy is a governing philosophy for the future, but that's been stripped away by the anti-intellectualism of the past decade and the conservative cause. do you see christoph? >> this is from "the new york times" yesterday, profiting from a child's illiter dacy. "this is painful for a liberal to admit, but conservatives have a point when they suggest that america's safety net can sometimes entangle people in a soul-crushing dependency. our poverty programs do rescue many people, don't join the military escape route for poor, rural americans because it's easier to rely on food stamps and disability payments most wrenching of all are the parents who think it's best if a child stays illiterate because then they receive a disability check each month. there's no doubt that some families with seriously disabled children receive a lifeline from ssi but the bottom line is that we shouldn't try to figh
of attention and emotion in michigan. we'll continue to watch it. as we know the governor can sign this bill making michigan the 24th right-to-work state in the country any moment. we'll keep you posted. rick: the obama administration is now cracking down on states refusing to comply with health care reform. the white house announcing any state that refuses to fully expand medicaid to required levels will not receive full funding under obamacare. this as we learn another state, tennessee, has joined more than a dozen others in opting not to create a state-backed insurance exchange. brad blakeman, former deputy assistant to president george w. bush. brad, is this because the rollout with obamacare is not exactly going as planned? >> you bet. when only 13 states opt in to medicaid expansion. nine states say they won't. there are a bunch of states sitting on the sidelines freting how they will be able to absorb this kind of cost. it is economic duress on part of the administration. they feel only way they can expand their coverage is threatening the states with funds. fact the matter, rick, 70
for everybody? then if the fiscal cliff is hit, then the persons that will be hit are president obama and harry reid. >> every single house republican needs to be involved in communication. if they passed a bill that extended the tax cuts for everybody and every single one of them went on local tv and local radio and said we have now passed a middle class tax extension, all the president has to do is sign it, you would have a totally different debate going on the next day. >> sean: this is what i feel is missing. the discussion, and as best i could, i'm trying to explain it, about conservative prime princi, about what's al at stake, and ai hear is or i sense a fear they don't want to go over the cliff and i sense a fear on the pr front and just even the president with the whole language of the debate seems like a defeat to me. >> i don't understand why they haven't said from day one this is the path to a balanced budget that has to involve entitlement reform and spending reform. i went to analysis on monday and interviewed mitch daniels who has been a terrific governor. mitch needed $3 billion
about that with a former chief of staff to president bill clinton and adviser to president obama and a founder and chairman of the center for american progress which is a washington think tank and he joins us now from our washington bureau. john great to have you this morning. good morning. are we going over this cliff, john? >> i think -- i certainly hope not and i think that people -- there are low level talks again and i think that the president and the speaker need to engage with each other to try to avoid that. but what we need to do for the long run is really to get on a path towards greater fiscal discipline but do it in a way that keeps momentum behind the economy right now, keeps jobs growing. after today or yesterday's job report the worst thing we can do is to go over the fiscal cliff and put the economy back into a recession. so i'm optimistic but it's going to take some hard bargaining and some work and i think the most important thing the president has put on the table is that there needs to be a balanced plan and there needs to be more reve
was for tax rates? president obama was crystal clear about what e he wanted. >> i have said that for incomes over $250,000 a year that we should go. back to the rates that we had when bill clinton was president. >> i want to reform the tax codes so that it's fair. the same rate we had when bill clinton was president. >> we have to ask you and me and the wealthiest among us to go back to the clinton rates for income above $250,000. >> the clinton tax rates, we need to go back. that's not a generic policy idea. that's really specific. the clinton tax rate for high income earners was 39.6%. that's what president obama was calling for during the campaign. that's still what president obama is calling for now. but now when you ask him if that's the red line, if it you ask if he will accept anything else, he doesn't really answer. >> tax rates. are you -- is there no deal at the end of the year if tax rates for the top 2% aren't the clinton tax rates, period. no ifs, ands or buts on that specific aspect of the fiscal cliff. >> with respect to the tax rates, i want to emphasize, i am open to new ide
turn to the next big ticket on obama's agenda -- immigration reform. starting in january the l.a. times reports the white house will begin an all-out drive for an immigration bill that will include a path to citizenship for the 11.1 million illegal immigrants currently in the country. the bill would also seek stronger border security measures, penalties for employers who hire illegal immigrants and would make it easier to bring in skilled foreign workers under special visas. in the interests of basic self-preservation, many republicans are also clambering for reform following their drubbing in the recent election when mitt's self-deportation policy lost the latino vote by a whopping 44 points. quote "there is a growing sense that this is an opportunity that should be taken, said ed jill esspi, a former republican national can i chairman. "there's no instinct like a survival instinct." for those thinking immigration reform will be a bipartisan community effort, think again. while many top republicans see a drastic need for change, many rank-and-file lawmakers remain skeptical. skeptical,
criticism. they seem to be negotiating against themselves. they give a proposal, obama gives a non-proposal, and they respond with another proposal. here's what i don't understand. seems the answer is simple if they're worried about the pr side or the political side. pass the bill. extend all the bush tax cuts and then the president and the senate or the president decides if they want to raise taxes on the middle class or not. put it on them. put the onus on them. >> they will have voted not to do that. obama has made a bet that the republican party is so inept at the politics of this that they will get stuck with it. he can hang the debt alba tros of the biggest tax increase in american history around their next. >> he wants it all. howard dean is the only guy i see that has said this is the best case scenario. they get defense sequestration, they get to raise taxes on everybody, and then they blame the republicans. >> yeah. and for howard dean, he's a man who basically believes in the european unionization of the united states. if you believe in that as obama does, too, this make

are going to have to come up. it may not be all the way up to the 39.6% where they were under bill clinton before the bush tax cults but i think you're seeing some element of pragmatism, some understanding that obama really does hold the cards having campaigned on this, having won re-election, having, you know, the sort of default being on his side, which is that all these things go away at midnight on december 31st. i think you are starting to see some movement despite the rhetoric. the question is really i think for obama, you know. i think -- he will have a deal available to him to avoid going over the fiscal cliff, i think, in exchange for raising rates a bit. the question is, is it a good enough deal or does he just say it's not a good enough deal, i can get a better deal by going over the cliff and i prefer to do that? because you guys haven't moved toward me enough. >> david, the sentiment noam expressed is the same we heard from tim geithner a few days ago. we've had a number of congressmen on this show who have said the same thing. it does seem at least that the sentiment may be s
